Bilstein B8 6112 leveling kits are designed to provide more ground clearance, allow for larger tires, and increase wheel travel. Multiple snap-ring grooves in the body allow for different spring seat positions, providing 0-2.75 inches of front lift (depending on application). These kits consist of (2) 60mm shock absorbers combined with (2) custom matched cold wound coil springs and (2) billet aluminum spring seats. The large 60mm digressive piston allows for increased damping control for optimal on-road and off-road capabilities. Experience the legendary Bilstein off-road experience with the best direct fit spring and shock kit for your light truck or SUV.
I kept bottoming out on a bad railroad crossing in town with my 2020 GMC 1500 CrewCab. Heard so many good comments on the Bilstein, I decided to replace the front suspension with the B8 6112 kit and ditch the stock suspension after only 22,000 miles. What an improvement. I can barely feel the railroad crossing now.

Super controlled compression and rebound. My truck is on the heavy side of the application list so the height increases were minimal.
4WP got them quick and the staff in Riverside helped load up my order.
No they must be assembled using the factory top hat and rubber insulator. It’s best to purchase NEW top hats and associated hardware and not reuse the original parts. This will also make installation and swap easy.
No, you will assembled and set the ride height with adjustable spring seats.
Yes worth the $$$ I installed it on my 2020 RST 1500 and what a difference it made in the ride quality my only regret is I wish I had pull the trigger on rather then I had bought the 2” block to level my truck but hated the ride. I bought this to improve the ride quality plus to level my truck I also replace the rear shocks with the bilstein 5160 and man the smoothest ride for a pickup truck

Yes. I have them on my 1500 3.0.
I’ve had the 5100 leveling shock. Is the 6112 leveling shock with springs going to be a harsher ride? Or how would the ride compare
Answer this question
I'd give Bilstein a call. They provided me excellent advice. Each truck is different. My 2020 Sierra 1500 front suspension bottomed out on a particular railroad crossing, whereas I hardly notice it with the new Bilstein setup.
The 6112 is a great ride on the street not harsh at all. You won’t be disappointed.
